administration to admit that this was a terrorist attack. >> well, now ambassador stevens, as you have heard, the father of ambassador stevens is saying, quote, it would really be abhorrent to make this into a campaign issue. it has to be objectively examined. it does not belong in the campaign arena. is the romney campaign wrong to politicize this while an investigation is ongoing? >> well, i think that when it comes to ambassador stevens' death all of us honor him for his service and his contribution to both our country and to what he did to help further the peace in libya. but what i think is an issue is this question of leadership and then how the events unfolded, what the white house did know, when it did know -- and when it knew it. so i think there's a separation. it's not necessarily about ambassador stevens but, in fact, about foreign policy and leadership and how this administration is handling the crisis that has stemmed from this internally. remember, richard, these were the same folks that came out and condemned anybody who suggested it was anything other than a video and now we
investigation in to that attack in libya and ambassador stevens killed and three other americans and someone that worked in the state department and knew the ambassador, do you think that the administration dropped the ball? >> the speech today is certainly going to highlight this but the administration is not dropping the ball. they have been coming out with information as they have learned it about the libya attacks and the danger today is con inflation of rhetoric and attacks could paint governor romney in to a position of scare mong mongering. this is a person in 2007 saying he would not go after bin laden if he had actionable intelligence and president obama got bin laden. the lynn yann incident is dangerous and the state department has to take care of the future in terms of its ambassador's safety and security and looking in to it. but to politicize it in such a way and platform could be undermining to that process. >> one area of concern is syria. ambassador ginsburg, i want your take on what governor romney is expected to say, specifically saying in syria, i'll work with the partners

, releasing memos yesterday, suggesting that ambassador stevens himself had concern over islamic radicals and al qaeda elements in benghazi. there was a september 11th cable concerned about libyan militias helping to provide security to ambassador stevens. and last but not least today, a report by david ig nashs, a veteran foreign affairs correspondent in "the washington post," citing a cia talking point. remember, susan rice, the ambassador to the united states got in a lot of heat because she went on shows a week later and said it was a spontaneous action. it turns out, that's exactly the talking points that the cia was distributing within the united states government. so a lot of controversy, a lot of ambiguity. it's not likely to die down between now and monday and even after that, richard. >> it's going to be a very detailed and involved issue, if they do bring it up. we're getting information each and every day. mike viqueira, thank you so much. now, the attack on libya, as mike viqueira was telling us, goes back to this exchange. this is a big issue and might be a very big part of
now is steven nuno. thank you for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> these numbers look horrible for mitt romney. you know, comments that his dad was mexican, he'd be doing better. is there hope for him in the latino voting community? >> no. but the reason he needs to switch his position on immigration is he needs to convince more moderate voters. you know, romney 2.0 is about connecting with moderate voters, and that's the majority of americans who believe there should be a pathway to citizenship and a humane approach to immigration. >> he says he wouldn't row evacuate president obama's plan that's been granting temporary visas for young, undocumented workers. is that progress enough? >> not really. there's two words that latinos should pay attention to when they're talking to mitt romney. that is kris kobach. and kris kobach is the attorney general of kansas and the author of bills like sb-1070. so long as the campaign is committed to policies like sb-1070, latinos should be aware of mitt romney's stances. >> so in a poll of latinos polled recently about what is their biggest c
this week he had his facts wrong. we should do what ambassador stevens' father asked us to do. allow the investigation to proceed. get to the bottom of this and find out what happened and who perpetrators were and bring temt to justice. that's what the president is doing. it will come out that governor romney hasn't outlined specific plans of his own. the fact is he hasn't outlined a plan to end the war in afghanistan. he criticized the president for saying we would have troops home by the end of 2014. he said he would have left 10,000 to 20,000 troops in iraq. i don't think what the american people want are endless wars. and the fact is governor romney hasn't provided plans of his own. just chest thumping and tough talk when it comes to foreign policy. >> can i tell you what a top campaign told politico. the campaign had the biggest campaign fund-raising day in history includes 2008. do you want to break news here? give us numbers. >> unfortunately i can't provide the number with you. that report was absolutely correct. you have seen momentum in states as well. it's translated into
